If you’ve been anticipating today and the usual mandalas, I apologize. Given the tragic shooting that occurred on Friday in Connecticut  I haven’t been particularly inspired to create any mandalas or even dig out any old ones. It somehow felt inappropriate or inadequate.  I can only offer this image and quote which is the front of one of my note cards and the sentiment that I kept thinking about all weekend, from the very wise Mr. Rogers, “There are times when explanations, no matter how reasonable, just don’t seem to help.”

Explanations Don't Help
